About the Sturmgeschutz III Ausf.G Early Version
Of the many assault guns utilized by the Germans in WWII, the most numerous was theSturmgeschütz III. Based on the durable Panzer III chassis with a completely new superstructure,the revolving turret was eliminated and the short barreled 75mm L/24 gun was mounted directlyonto the hull, giving the StuG III an extremely low vehicle profile. Originally intended for closeinfantry fire support, it was used as self-propelled artillery against enemy strong points. However,when the German forces encountered the Russian KV-I and T-34 tanks on the Easternfront, the situation abruptly changed. To cope with this Russian tank threat, the Germans wereforced to upgrade their existing weapons systems. The resulting StuG III Ausf.G, built from late1942 onwards, used a more powerful, long barreled 75mm L/48 gun.
